Wanted to try this. Of course, SNL is known for their sketch comedy but another important part of the show is the musical guests. Starting with this season, I wanted to chronicle the musical guests that perform on the show. Each week, I would post video of the two musical performances and people can comment if they liked it or not. Since three episodes from this season have aired so far, I have so catching up to do.

For the September 28th season opener, rising pop star Billie Eilish performed two songs, "Bad Guy" and "i love you." Both are on her debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?

I really enjoy the lineup of musical guests this season so far.

All three ladies are artists I either don't love (Swift and Cabello) or haven't known of or had much interest in (Eilish). But all three brought incredible talent to the 8H stage. Eilish and Swift impressed me more with unbelievably exceptional set designs and renditions during the "Bad Guy" and "Lover" performances, respectively.

I always love SNL for the musical performances (especially when the artist changes the set to suit their featured song) and I'm super excited for what's to come as Season 45 continues.

That "Nice to Meet Ya" video is private. Here's the new link.

I really don't get why some of the videos are now private (as in both Chance performances, Coldplay's performance of "Everyday Life", both Harry Styles performances, both King Princess performances and now Niall Horan's "Nice to Meet Ya" aside from the alternate link I posted for the latter).

Anyway, yesterday Lizzo performed "Truth Hurts" and a holiday remix of "Good as Hell".

Thank you, @AdrenalineRush1996 for posting the videos. As for why some videos are private, I'm not sure. I expected SNL to delete their videos after a while, but it's odd that the main channels for the artists are deleting the videos.

Actually, there's a difference between deleting videos and putting them on private since the latter means only those you invite to view the video can view it (they must have their own YouTube accounts and the maximum number is 50 usernames).
